The detail in these miniatures is amazing. The collection is in a barn on two levels and it was warm the day we visited. There is no air conditioning but that did not distract from the experience. The buildings were constructed with evident care by...More

What a great surprise to find this place. Our kids love anything "minature" so when we heard about The Barn we decided to stop. The craftsmanship, detail, time and effort that went into building these displays is amazing. We are not talking about a few...More

This was our second visit to the museum, but our first since we've had kids. Our 4 and 6 year old boys were along this time. The collection is mostly built by one man, and mostly during the 70's and early 80's when he died....More
